Is communication at work with American counterparts, clients or colleagues difficult because of the communication gap?
Hello, everyone, I am Jennifer Kumar. I am a native American English speaker working in Kochi, India. I am here to help you learn to tune your ear and your vocal apparatus to hear and speak more clearly with Americans.
To get started, I request you to take a voice-accent screen. I speak about it in this video. The video below it is a tutorial to a website that can be useful in sharing the recording for this voice-accent screen.
Here is information on submitting your voice-accent screen through soundcloud.com.
